Thread: Does Fosters suck in Australia too?




  1. Default

    Now before I start a flame war about beer, I got to say that everyone has their tastes, but ****ty beer is ****ty beer. Anyone here in the states can agree that Natural Light/ICE is bad (unless you're drunk already). My favorite beer is Yuengling Lager, which most people never had, but its brewed about 20 minutes from where I live, and is only sold in Pennsylvania and Florida (they jsut opened a brewery in FLorida). Its an awesome mild lager, that has a wonderful taste, not bitter at all.

    Well I went out to the local distro, and picked up a pack of Fosters, figuring what the hell, TT is based in Australia, might as well taste it. So after a nice chilling in the MiniFridgeŽ I popped it open, and my God, its horrible. I know real Australian beer cannot taste like this, so tell me my Aussie friends, is Foster Australian for beer as the commercial states, or is it just another cheap import to rip off the Men at Work song? ;)

    Fosters leaves the country as the same quality as Crown Larger, which is a premium beer in Australia. It is sold in Aust as cheap beer, comes out of the same brew but doesnt sit as long.

    The beer you had should be good.

    I could probably get away with shipping Yuengling out to ya boys. I forgot to mention that Yuengling is the oldest brewery in the United States. The shipping costs would be extraordinary however.
